Geoff Says

| 14/12/2018

Bridgwater and Albion director of rugby Geoff Sluman was pleased with the team’s narrow victory over Teignmouth but admitted that there was still plenty for them to work on.
“Games between Teignmouth and ourselves have historically been close and in the six previous league encounters each side has won three each. Teignmouth had not played for three weeks as their last two league fixtures were postponed because of the weather.”
He went on: “In contrast we had probably played two of the toughest three matches we have played so far this season. Teignmouth were fresh and ready to go, whereas we were a little battered and bruised, but there are pros and cons for each.
“Last week we were the polar opposite, because we started really well this week and our opposition finished up strongly. We scored five tries, four through the forwards so we gained a try scoring bonus point too.
“However it is five league points after a difficult couple of games so we are pleased with the result but we know we still have a lot to work on.”
This coming weekend the Albion host Hornets- the first team they play for a second time this season.
Looking towards that game- the last league encounter before the Christmas break Geoff said: “We won 31-42 when we played earlier in the season. I am massively respectful of the Hornets team, they are very capable so we will be pushing for a good performance.
He added: “I am sure they will want revenge for the earlier result and we won’t really be able to surprise them again. It is the last league game before Christmas so we won’t be saving anything back, we will just go for it.”
Please note- all home league games in South West One West will start at 3pm.
